Michael Rogers To Focus On Real Estate Investing

After 15 years in corporate audit Michael Rogers is transitioning to manage his real estate investment portfolio, Chandler Properties.  Mr. Rogers is a certified public accountant who started out at a regional CPA firm, then worked at two Chattanooga insurance companies in the Internal Audit departments.  During the last three years Mr. Rogers worked part-time in his corporate position and focused on growing the fix and flip business on the side.  

“I am excited that I will now be able to focus on real estate investing full-time going forward," said Mr. Rogers.  "I’ve always had a passion for entrepreneurship and getting to do this every day is a dream come true.   

"My plan is to continue to grow the house buying business as well as manage the rentals and self storage business.  In the second half of 2016 we purchased four properties that we either fixed up and rented or sold.  In 2017 we will focus more on marketing and growing the house buying business.  We buy directly from sellers via our website www.sellmichaelyourhouse.com.”   

The typical house being purchased by Mr. Rogers needs quite a bit of repairs and updates.  Outdated houses are more difficult to sell through a realtor.  These sellers are not looking to go through the hassle of taking on a large remodeling job just so they can list the property with a reator.  “We come in and make a no-obligation cash offer," said Mr. Rogers.  "If they are interested in selling it, we buy it 'as-is' and take on all the risks in repairing it.  I’ll even give the homeowner recommendations on repairs they can make to get the property ready to sell through a realtor if they don’t want to take our offer." 

The Chandler Properties portfolio currently owns and manages houses, multifamily, commercial, and self storage in the Cleveland and Chattanooga markets.  Mr. Rogers plans to manage the daily operations of the business from their recently acquired office at 1310 South Lee Hwy.

I have written a number of obituaries on those who are still alive who want to “proof-read” what will be turned into the funeral home and I have honored death-bed requests that this ...
